Our Mission

Welcome to the Stanford's Battery reenactor group website.  We are a Confederate Civil War Artillery reenactor group based out of the Chicago land area.

The Unit

Stanford's Battery of Illinois is a Non-profit organization that is dedicated to preserving our country's Civil War era history through presentations and historical reenactments that are interesting in a relevant and useful way. 

Our membership is primarily from the greater Chicago, Illinois and Northwest Indiana areas.  Our events take place on most weekends from April through October. We set up a typical artillery camp, drill, and participate in demonstrations with other Civil War Units in the area and at national level events.  As a unit we try to be as authentic as possible in appearance, but still have fun.
